Went up to Tony Allen's photographic studio in Oxford again today - and although we planned on getting the shot egg pictures, we stayed on the water-filled balloons. This 9 millionths of a second exposure will show you why :D More to follow :shock:

Very nicely done.

I am curious if the balloon is instead backlit, if you can more easily see the internal bullet wake. Would be very interested to see that shot.

Thank you everyone :D
The flash units were designed by me over 25 years ago and they are now commercially available from a company in Ely near Cambridge. I wrote a short note on them in the Review section of Camera Labs.
